Mr Roger Domingo-Roca
- Research Assistant (Systems Power & Energy)
My research focuses on the study of the key parameters affecting the efficiency of ultrasound-mediated targeted drug delivery (UmTDD). This encompasses the study of fluid flow within blood capillaries and the study of how confinement effects influence microbubble behaviour. These features provide information about the relevant parameters affecting UmTDD efficiency. As a physicist, I am interested in understanding which are the relevant physical phenomena ruling the system, with special focus in nonlinear and non-Newtonian events.
I am also interested in materials science, with special attention in developing new functional polymer-based 3D-printable materials presenting contrasting mechanical and physical properties such as biocompatibility, piezoelectricity, magnetism, and conductivity. I am currently working toward the development of tissue-mimicking 3D-printable materials that can be used to better understand the key parameters influencing UmTDD efficiency.
